Thinking About My Old, Creepy Friend Bari Reminds Me That I Used to Listen to a Lot of Bauhaus

Duff McKagan's column runs every Thursday on Reverb. He writes about what music is circulating through his space every Monday.
I have been writing out of public view writing lately about some stories from my past. A moment and figure that I had totally forgot about was my first roommate I had when I first moved to Hollywood in 1984. A fellow by the name of Bari Bari was the bass player for goth band Christian Death. The memory of Bari further reminded me of a band that I used to listen to all of the time: Bauhaus. Check these choice tracks:

"Bela Lugosi's Dead:" Probably their most 'popular' or infamous track. This is a great place to start if you want to broaden your Bauhaus horizon.

"Silent Hedges:" These guys were really ahead of their time as far as creating a sonic mood. This song is still quite listenable, even now that we are so used to modern technology in music.

"The Three Shadows (Parts 1,2, and 3):" Epic and classic Bauhaus. A more fashio-conscious Pink Floyd for a newer generation perhaps?
